Spanish racer David Vidales will complete the Campos Racing line-up for 2022, with the team announcing that the 19-year-old has joined Hunter Yeany and Josep María Martí for the new season.

Vidales makes the step up on the back of a year in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine, where he finished 10th driving for PREMA with three podiums and a win.

Linking up with Campos for Days 1 and 2 of post-season testing in Valencia, Vidales finished in the top 10 in both sessions on Day 2.

On joining Campos, Vidales said: “It’s an honour for me to become part of the team founded by the late Adrian Campos, the man who, together with my manager Salvatore Gandolfo, helped me in my first steps in single-seater driving.

“Also, I am very proud to join a Spanish team and I can’t wait to start working with them to aim for wins in the 2022 FIA Formula 3 series!”

Vidales only made his single-seater debut in 2020, racing for JD Motorsport in Formula Renault Eurocup. Placing sixth with six podiums and one win, Vidales remained in the series as it merged with Formula Regional European Championship for 2021.

The Spaniard also entered F3 Asian in 2021, taking one podium to finish 13th in the standings.

“I would like to welcome David (Vidales) as new Campos Racing driver,” said Campos Racing Team Principal Adrián Campos. “He is a very competitive driver who got his first taste of single-seater racing with us. We all know his real potential and how well he is able to perform.

“Whenever we have the opportunity to work with Spanish talents, we definitely do it. Our goal this season is to hoist the Spanish flag at the top of the podium as much as possible.”
